Apple has made some changes to work Night Shift in the fifth beta version of iOS 9.3. In particular, the company has restricted the operation of the function in power saving mode and changed the way the mode is enabled via the control room.
The principle of Night Shift is that at night the color scheme of the screens of the iPhone and iPad gets warmer, protecting the eyes from excessive load, and in the morning returned to the normal position. Driving mode is possible from the “display & brightness” settings in the operating system iOS. Here you can adjust the color temperature (from cold blue to warm yellow), enable the “Decrease blue” and configure the schedule.
Released March 1 update iOS 9.3 beta 5 does not allow you to use Night Shift at the same time with energy saving mode. When you activate the last section “Screen brightness” appears “Night Shift is turned off in power saving mode”. Also the function is not available from the control room. Probably Night Shift puts further stress on the battery, so Apple decided to disable it to save battery.

Also in iOS 9.3 the touch of a button Night Shift in the control center no longer causes the drop-down menu with the “Enable/Disable” and “Enable/Disable until tomorrow”. Instead, the function manually activates the Night Shift to automatic shift in accordance with the established in the settings schedule.
In addition, in the fifth beta version of the slider to adjust the display temperature Night Shift moved to the bottom menu. Inscriptions are “Cooler” and “Warmer” changed to “Colder” and “Warmer” and blue and yellow dots disappeared from the interface. At the bottom added an explanatory note: “warmer temperatures can reduce eye strain”.

Update iOS 9.3 beta 5 available to developers and participants of the open testing. The final release is expected before the end of March.
